The original reports on Conley's EastEnders exit suggested his departure came as a surprise, and the soap is working out ways to write out his character, possibly as part of the ongoing Christmas whodunnit storyline.

A spokesperson for EastEnders told Digital Spy: "There are many rumours and theories circulating about whose body is under the Christmas tree but, to not spoil the drama for the audience, we will not be commenting on any speculation."

As well as his tour, Conley is also lining up a lead role in the Cinderella Christmas panto at the Milton Keynes Theatre.

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
